Buying used video games is great for gamers who don’t want to pay full price for the latest hits. You know who doesn’t like used video games? Game publishers. In a very sad twist, Capcom’s fighting back against the second-hand game market with a game that can only support one save file — for life. It’s been confirmed that Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D for the Nintendo 3DS is a game that once finished, cannot be reset for complete replay. According to both the U.S. and U.K. game’s instruction manual “saved data on this software cannot be reset.”
oh my god SERIOUSLY WHAT
So basically you can play a game ONCE and that’s it? Yeah when games cost like $60 a pop, the fact that I can replay it is a huge reason I feel like I can justify that cost. No freaking way, Capcom.
Yeah. I like Resident Evil a lot but… sorry. I’ll never buy a game like that.
How About That of the Day: Former President Bill Clinton was a guest on NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! this weekend, and was inadvertently outed as a major My Little Pony fan during a segment called “Not My Job,” wherein knowledgeable people are asked about things they should have no knowledge of.
“So you’re a former president, you’re a Rhodes scholar, you’re famously well informed. What could we be sure that an accomplished person like you would know nothing about?,” host Peter Sagal asked Clinton rhetorically. “And then the answer came to us: the TV show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.”
One little snag: Clinton was able to answer all of Sagal’s questions correctly.
Turns out we already had our first Brony president, and didn’t even know it.
“Did you know that real Warblers won’t sing alone? It’s true - if a Warbler loses it’s flock or is caged separately it sits silently until another one shows up. (he looks at Kurt) It’s not that he doesn’t have a beautiful voice - it’s just that without a companion he just doesn’t feel like singing anymore.”—
The following are 12 things that the mainstream media is being strangely quiet about right now….
#1 The crisis at the Fort Calhoun nuclear facility in Nebraska has received almost no attention in the national mainstream media.
#2 Most Americans are aware that the U.S. is involved in wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. However, the truth is that the U.S. military is also regularly bombing Yemen and parts of Pakistan. If you count the countries where the U.S. has special forces and/or covert operatives on the ground, the U.S. is probably “active” in more countries in the Middle East than it is not. Now there are even persistent rumors that U.S. ground units are being prepared to go into Libya. Are we watching the early stages of World War 3 unfold before our eyes in slow motion?
#3 The crisis at Fukushima continues to get worse. Arnold Gundersen, a former nuclear industry senior vice president, recently made the following statement about the Fukushima disaster….
“Fukushima is the biggest industrial catastrophe in the history of mankind”
TEPCO has finally admitted that this disaster has released more radioactive material into the environment than Chernobyl did. That makes Fukushima the worst nuclear disaster of all time, and it is far from over.
#4 Members of Congress continue to mention Christians as a threat to national security. For example, during a recent Congressional hearing U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee warned that “Christian militants” might try to “bring down the country” and that such groups need to be investigated.
#5 China’s eastern province of Zhejiang has experienced that worst flooding that it has seen in 55 years. 2 million people have already been forced to leave their homes. China has already been having huge problems with their crops over the past few years and this is only going to make things worse.
#6 Thanks to the Dodd-Frank Act, over the counter trading of gold and silver is going to be illegal starting on July 15th. Or at least that is what some companies apparently now believe.
#7 All over the world, huge cracks are appearing for no discernible reason. For example, a massive crack that is approximately 3 kilometers long recent appeared in southern Peru. Also, a 500 foot long crack suddenly appeared recently in the state of Michigan. When you also throw in all of the gigantic sinkholes that have been opening all over the world, it is easy to conclude that the planet is becoming very unstable.
#8 According to U.S. Forest Service officials, the largest wildfire in Arizona state history has now covered more than 500,000 acres. But based on the coverage it is being given by the mainstream media you would think that it is a non-event.
#9 There are reports that North Korea has tested a “super EMP weapon” which would be capable of taking out most of the U.S. power grid in a single shot. The North Koreans are apparently about to conduct another nuclear test and that has some Obama administration officials very concerned.
#10 All over the United States, “active shooter drills” are being conducted in our public schools. Often, most of the students are not told that these drills are fake. Instead, students often go through hours of terror as they think a hostage situation or a shooting spree is really taking place.
#11 NASA has just launched a “major” preparedness initiative for all NASA personnel. The following is an excerpt about this plan from NASA’s own website….
A major initiative has been placed on Family/Personal Preparedness for all NASA personnel. The NASA Family/Personal Preparedness Program is designed to provide awareness, resources, and tools to the NASA Family (civil servants and contractors) to prepare for an emergency situation. The most important assets in the successful completion of NASA’s mission are our employees’ and their families. We are taking the steps to prepare our workforce, but it is your personal obligation to prepare yourself and your families for emergencies.
#12 Over the past week over 40 temporary “no fly zones” have been declared by the FAA. This is very highly unusual. Nobody seems to know exactly why this is happening.
So what do all of these things mean?
It would be nice if the mainstream media would examine some of these important issues more closely and do some honest reporting on them.
Oh my God, all of this. I … had no idea about the first.
We did active shooter drills in middle school, as well, and how they were initiated was someone just said “lockdown” over the PA.
Listen up, and listen well. So, I’m sure that many of you are well aware of the sudden news breaking story that has hit the web, papers and other forms of media regarding Megan Fox, Michael Bay & Steven Spielberg. I have recently gotten this month’s issue of GQ: Magazine, and the main article in this month’s issue focuses on Michael Bay’s career. In a huge chunk of the interview, they talk about Megan Fox.
So basically in this bullshit of an Interview they’re talking about how they fired Megan Fox from Transformers & quickly replaced her with Victoria Secret model, Rosie Huntington Whiteley: all because of Megan’s interview with Wonderland Magazine. In the Wonderland Magazine interview, Megan talks about how Michael Bay can act like a total tyrant on set; comparing him to Hitler. Now, the fact that I do run a blog of Megan Fox, I would be considered biased of my opinion on this whole stupid ordeal. But biased or not, I would still laugh at how pathetic this interview really is.
For one, Megan should have not compared him to Hitler. Though Hitler was technically a dictator, she still shouldn’t have used that comparison. Nonetheless, I get what she was trying to say. Michael Bay is known for being a total dictating prick on set. He is a tyrant. According to Bay, Steven Spielberg wanted him to fire Megan for that comment. So ‘apparently’ he did, and in the interview, he continues to make it known that she’s so insignificant; so insignificant, that he doesn’t even remember having her on his contacts list. Please, I don’t believe that for a second. This is a typical, “NO, I dumped HER. She didn’t break up with me!” scenario. Now, I’ll get into why I don’t believe she was fired, but I’d like to shed some more light on the whole ‘Megan talking shit on bay topic’.
See, this is what baffles me. Shia LeBeouf is a grade A asshole (He is. This isn’t an opinion. It’s a fact. He’s a douchelord). Shia has called Michael Bay a fucking cocksucker to his face, has talked shit about Steven Spielberg when he was taking part in Steven’s Indiana Jones flick, yet has gotten no horrible backlash from neither of them. I mean, I’m sure he’s gotten retaliation from both parties, but not to the point where he gets fired and is bashed by the media. Why? Because Shia’s a dude. Men in Hollywood get away with so much shit. Us dudes can get away with acting like assholes. We’re tagged as bosses when we don’t take shit from no one. The minute an actress stands up for herself, she’s tagged a bitch. Word will go around saying how she’s too difficult to work with, she’s unprofessional etc. When that happens, her career is fucked. Actresses constantly have to be sweet, nice, submissive, attentive etc. Honestly, a women can’t be all of those things. Actresses can’t be ‘perfect’, they’re human beings too, lmao.
Do you see dudes trying to fit the mold that is required for an actress to have in order to succeed in this business? No. We do whatever the fuck we want because we’re bosses, as should women (Doing what we want in terms of still remaining professional, yet stand for what you believe in…but we can still get away with acting like dicks). Christian Bale can act like the biggest fucking bitch on the set of Terminator 4 (Click to hear Christian going psycho on set)and still keep his career going; continuing to succeed in the film industry. If Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Scarlett Johansson or any other female actor were to pull this shit, they would never be allowed to work in the Hollywood industry again. If they were to even make a public apology on behalf of their behavior, everybody would still tag them as not only bitches, but fake bitches that are only apologizing because they want to keep their careers. There’s so much misogyny going on in Hollywood. I mean, it’s ridiculous, and that’s what we’re facing here.
Megan was done with the bullshit. Even though Shia is a dick, he stood up for Megan in a recent interview…well, sort of. Anyway, he said that Michael didn’t have time to beat around the bush of what he wanted from Megan. He pretty much would tell Megan to stick her tits and ass out. Of course, she got tired of his shit and would call him out. She was acting like a boss, but in the eyes of a women demeaning fuckwad, she was acting like a fucking prude bitch. Then came the ‘anonymous Transformers crew letter’, which stated that Megan is a dumb porn star lookin’ twat who acts like a diva on set 24/7, and gives Michael Bay a hard time. Something as unprofessional and unsubstantial shouldn’t be posted on Michael Bay’s website for all to see. That in itself is unprofessional, but that’s indeed what had happened. That letter filled with word vomit was posted on a site getting hundreds of thousands of hits a day; a letter with no proof to back it up. The letter also talked about how Megan should just shut her ass up, because Michael Bay gave her a career. She should be grateful. She should kiss his feet and bow to him. I’m sorry, but that’s fucking bullshit dude. Just because Michael helped gain Megan fame doesn’t mean he can constantly treat her like a piece of meat. He doesn’t own her. You can have a sexy character without being degrading to the actress, and he degraded her.
Megan took a beating. I mean, for her Transformers audition tape, Michael Bay made her wash his Ferrari in her bikini. That’s not great for her image, but big money & big career opportunities don’t come around often. This is what makes the Hollywood industry a complex place to be in for actresses. Where do you draw the line for this kind of shit? Obviously, Megan Fox had enough. But that’s rarely the way it’s framed in media. Unfortunately, that’s what happened with Fox. She was tagged as a bitch who didn’t keep her mouth shut, when really her boss was just a sexist power-hungry asshole who demeaned her as a person. She left. I mean, how are you going to fire someone over an honest interview (which should have been worded differently on Megan’s part but whatever) and yet still get them fitted for clothes, show up for production for the third Transformers? No, she told him to chuck a deuce and split. No douchebag wants to be the one that gets dumped. Honestly, every fucking dude that I know who was the stereotypical dickheaded jock that got dumped by their girl, tries to say he dumped her because she was a bitch. So, who does everyone believe? The really popular jock who everyone admires? Or his little cheerleader girlfriend? The jock wins. The girl gets shamed. The end. That’s what happened here. Done.
